Crash Kills Woman, Seriously Injures Male Driver


Deltona, FL - A vehicle out of control kills a Deltona woman and seriously injures the male driver.

The car lost control around 11:30 Saturday night (May 7) and crossed over a raised median before crashing into a tree at a home on Providence Boulevard, according to the Volusia Sheriff’s Office.
